KYZEN announces that it has been awarded a 2016 NPI Award in the category of Cleaning Materials for its AQUANOX® A8820 Advanced Aqueous Stencil Cleaner. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, March 15, 2016 ceremony that took place at the Las Vegas Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO. This marks KYZEN’s ninth consecutive NPI Award.

“Innovation is the life blood of every organization. That is doubly true for KYZEN, which is one of the reasons for our name, derived from the concept of continuous improvement and good change,” said Tom Forsythe, Executive Vice President of KYZEN Corporation. “Being recognized as an innovator by the industry is both validation and positive feedback for our R&D team as they continue to develop the solution to tomorrow’s challenges today. That is how we bring science and care together for the benefit of the industry, and our customers in particular.”

AQUANOX® A8820 is an engineered Micro Cell Technology (MCT™) cleaning fluid designed to remove wet solder paste and uncured chip bonder adhesive from stencils used in surface mount printing processes. It effectively removes common solder pastes and fluxes, and demonstrates a favorable compatibility profile with stencil cleaning systems.

A8820 works well with spray-in-air and select ultrasonic cleaning machines, and is effective on uncured adhesives. Additionally, the no-foaming property of A8820 is compatible with all materials commonly used in electronic assembly manufacturing and cleaning processes.

KYZEN’s AQUANOX® A8820 has been designed from the ground up for the tough challenges of cleaning no-clean, lead-free residue from small, 1005 apertures while being compatible with modern nano-coatings as well as with all of the modern offline cleaning equipment that is popular in the industry. A8820 is a quick drying product that also is rapidly rinsed if water rinsing is preferred

AQUANOX® A8820 is available in five, 25 and 200 liter drums. In addition to A8820, KYZEN offers a full line of precision cleaning chemistries to meet any cleaning challenge.
